Further Defence Cuts Threatened – Official – the pound now buys fewer and fewer troops.
October 2017 – a UK pound (old or new) bought 100 soldiers of the Battle Squadron and its Epic Battles.
January 2018 – a UK pound bought only 80 soldiers.
Mid February 2018 – the same UK pound bought you only 70 troops.
The Epic Battles are now slightly smaller. Watch this space for Further Defence Cuts. (February 2018)
Poundland Defence Forces Update late 2018
Mid to late 2018 – The Epic Battles tubs of 100, sorry 80, sorry 70 figures are now none! Now is the time to invade Poundland … other than a few jointed 6 inch action figures, which don’t really count.
Pound Land is now defenceless. They have no troops left.
Do not be alarmed – these penny dreadful figures can be found in various packs online if you search.
The only Pound Store figures in Pound Land (UK) were these chunky blind bag / box Awesome Little Green Men – I bought three £1 boxes ‘on spec’ (December 2018) to see what these were. Going going gone January 2019 … now series 1 is ‘unavailable’ these collectibles are worth £5 to £6.
Awesome Little Green Men Series 2 features the inevitable Zombies … but only available in the USA.
The moral of this story about Pound Store Plastic Warriors: Buy ’em when you see ’em! They may not be there next time.
